By law you need to have Not for hire on the truck.

If the DOT officer in the weigh station does not see the markings they come after you.

In British columbia I have had no problems stopping to get weight. They even offered to print out my weight on a slip for me (no cost).

I do not check my weight if there is a commercial line up.

I think it is a good service that they provide as you can tell from all of the dicussions on being over weight in this forum.

If you want to really make a bunch of OTR Drivers happy, just get in line at the weight station(chicken house)to be green lighted. For some mature listening, switch on your radio to channel 19. while you are in line and probably for some time after. I think truck drivers have a low enough opinion of RVers'abilities and common sense already. Good you should ask first. Too bad there is not a forum for every thing else in life. RS

shepdog29,

Just curious, where did you ever see a weigh station that said "RV's"?

We've notice a lot of weigh stations in the south now post:
"Commercial trucks/trailers only"

Guess this is there best defense against us.

Weigh stations, at least in the SE, are for commercial vehicles. You do not need to stop.
